  • The role of GRIP1 and ephrin B3 in blood pressure control and vascular smooth muscle cell contractility. 

    Wang, Y; Wu, Z; Luo, H; Peng, J; Raelson, J; Ehret, GB; Munroe, PB; Stoyanova, E; Qin, Z; Cloutier, G;... (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-12-12)
    Several erythropoietin-producing hepatocellular receptor B family (EPHB) and their ligands, ephrinBs (EFNBs), are involved in blood pressure regulation in animal models. We selected 528 single nucleotide polymorphisms ...
  • Association of MicroRNAs and YRNAs With Platelet Function. 

    Kaudewitz, D; Skroblin, P; Bender, LH; Barwari, T; Willeit, P; Pechlaner, R; Sunderland, NP; Willeit, K; Morton, AC; Armstrong, PC;... (American Heart Association, Inc., 2015-12-08)
    RATIONALE: Platelets shed microRNAs (miRNAs). Plasma miRNAs change on platelet inhibition. It is unclear whether plasma miRNA levels correlate with platelet function. OBJECTIVE: To link small RNAs to platelet reactivity. ...
  • Novel Synthetic, Host-defense Peptide Protects Against Organ Injury/Dysfunction in a Rat Model of Severe Hemorrhagic Shock. 

    Yamada, N; Martin, LB; Zechendorf, E; Purvis, GSD; Chiazza, F; Varrone, B; Collino, M; Shepherd, J; Heinbockel, L; Gutsmann, T;... (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2017-03-10)
    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate (1) levels of the host-defense/antimicrobial peptide LL-37 in patients with trauma and hemorrhagic shock (HS) and (2) the effects of a synthetic host-defense peptide; Pep19-4LF on multiple organ ...
  • Key Questions Relating to Left Ventricular Noncompaction Cardiomyopathy: Is the Emperor Still Wearing Any Clothes? 

    Anderson, RH; Jensen, B; Mohun, TJ; Petersen, SE; Aung, N; Zemrak, F; Planken, RN; MacIver, DH (2017-02-01)
    The evidence is increasing that left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy as it is currently defined does not represent a failure of compaction of pre-existing trabecular myocardium found during embryonic development ...
  • Rare and low-frequency coding variants alter human adult height. 

    Marouli, E; Graff, M; Medina-Gomez, C; Lo, KS; Wood, AR; Kjaer, TR; Fine, RS; Lu, Y; Schurmann, C; Highland, HM;... (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-02-01)
    Height is a highly heritable, classic polygenic trait with approximately 700 common associated variants identified through genome-wide association studies so far. Here, we report 83 height-associated coding variants with ...
